, that -- like, that's not going to change. and president obama can't do that. the one thing that i think maureen makes a good point about, though, it's worth the white house paying attention to this, is that the president should never say i've done everything i can do. because nobody ever has. right? there's always more to do, there's always more to try and you can never be seen as kind of throwing up your hands and saying, well, it's all on them. and i'm done. and i think that that's kind of the -- the one sort of maybe even stylistic mistake that the president made in the press conference or he's making now, is that -- he needs to give people more that they can do, and he needs to keep doing more himself, and the republicans and stephanie is absolutely right, mitch mcconnell bears more of this blame than the president does but we ought to just keep talking about it. we ought to just keep pushing at it, and i think the president can never say it's -- you know, it's up to you guys now. he always has to have some new activity that he and other people can do to keep trying. >> dean, what about thi

that is coming out of white house i'm not sure they he will. >> chris: senator john mccain who has been pushing president obama to intervene in syria for two years renewing his call this week after finding the assad regime has used chemical weapons. it is time for the sunday group. brit hume, fox news senior political analyst. amy walter of the cook political report. bill kristol from the weekly standard and charles lane of the washington post. i think it is fair to say that president obama has put himself in a bit of a box here on syria. kept talking for months about red lines and consequences and game changers but you clearly mindful of the bad entell against that led into the invasion of iraq and also clear he never wanted to get involved military in syria. is there a graceful way out for him? >> what he will do and is trying to do is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying yes indeed we did use serin gas on these people. appetizing prospect. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 pe

to chemical weapon use, you've got to make sure you've got the facts. >>> despite president obama's reluctance to outline any specific actions his administration might make, "the washington post" is reporting that -- the post quotes a senior white house official say that even as the administration is moving forward with caution, quote, we are clearly on an upward trajectory. we've moved over to assistance that has a direct military purpose. though the white house is reportly edging toward this move for several months, it would represent a significant shift with you now is richard engel. my first questioned is this approach seems to be two-pronged, moving forward very carefully. on the other side they seem to be testing the waters for greater engagement, specifically military, on the issue. >> reporter: in terms of the caution, i think that has to do with the red line issue, the chemical weapons, there is a lot of reports and rumors about chemical weapons. there's something of a panic among the opposition in syria regarding the use. an anecdotal story, just the day before yesterday there were r
